Emmys: 55th Emmys Reviews

January 3, 2020
Except for Conan O'Brien's intentionally loud dance number tuxedo and Wanda Sykes pointlessly wandering around the audience, Sunday's Emmy Awards on Fox were relatively mistake-free and unusually predictable.
January 6, 2020
Great comic bits and memorable one-liners and zingers were in short supply, even as the number of comics serving as host swelled to nearly a dozen. Memo to Emmy: Give us a single host next year!
January 3, 2020
However, lively moments such as those were the exception as providing a showcase for the medley of comics was largely responsible for slowing the first two hours of the telecast to a glacial pace.
January 3, 2020
The Emmy telecast itself was a disjointed affair, with a series of comedians rather than a single host guiding the ceremony.
January 3, 2020
Four worthless hours of television.

This year's show, however, was pretty soundly entertainment-free, ranging from the dutifully tasteful to the weirdly tasteless.
January 3, 2020
Three words and an exclamation point: Get a host!
January 3, 2020
Yawn-inducing crap, including a parade of writers and producers who remind us of our schoolteachers. Not exactly what we tuned in to see.
January 3, 2020
A punishingly lackluster awards show that fittingly enough commemorated a drearily mediocre year in television, the Emmys offered few surprises, pleasant or otherwise.
January 3, 2020
This year's telecast tacked on an extra degree of difficulty to its three-hour-plus plunge, adopting a rotating-host format that never caught its rhythm and resulted in one of the flattest Emmys in years.
January 3, 2020
Conan O'Brien, Wanda Sykes, Ellen DeGeneres, Garry Shandling, Bernie Mac, Darrell Hammond, George Lopez, Miller, Garrett, Short and Stewart all tried for laughs, but generally failed to get more than a few groans.
